PACEY's blog - food for thought

The power of illustration

As a reader of a great many stories, what do you look for most in a children’s book? Are you looking for pictures full of colour, artistic drawings, humour? Do you like your books to be large or do you prefer books designed for little hands? Are your shelves rammed with all the firm favourites? And do you admit to hiding some to avoid reading it for the 100th time that week?

Bringing books and stories outdoors

Books and stories don’t just have to be confined indoors – many provide a great basis for taking the fun outside!  Children love outdoor adventures and using books to support their ‘outside’ learning journey is a great way to keep the fun going.
